Qube Records is a collective of young, original songwriters and musicians based at Mounts Bay Academy in Penzance. Set up in 2014, initially to make one album of songs from the young people of Penzance, the project has grown enormously and in 2020 we surpassed 60,000 worldwide downloads, with all the music written, performed, recorded and released by the young people themselves. We have won numerous national awards including the Bernice McCabe Award in 2020, and had loads of press coverage including a great feature on BBC Spotlight.
Our live sets are showcases for our amazing singer songwriters, backed by a flexible lineup of accompanying musicians. Ranging from solo performances to full rock bands with string and horn sections, we can fill any stage big or small, and tailor the show to be quiet and intimate or something much bigger and louder. In 2018 we played a hugely acclaimed run of gigs in Belgium and The Netherlands and were due to be in Italy this summer. When the first lockdown hit we had just played really well received shows at Spirit Studios in Manchester, and The Oval in London.
Our European tour plans for this summer have been replaced with a run of extra special Cornish shows which we know will be even more special and we can’t wait to get back out there!
